BTT stopped working

Like others, I have found that BTT, which is pretty fantastic, has just stopped working. iMac running latest Ventura; problem persists through many restarts, reinstallation of BTT, and upgrade to Sonoma 14.1.1. No trackpad or keyboard triggers do anything. Newly defined ones don't do anything.

Affected input device (e.g. MacBook Trackpad, Magic Mouse/Trackpad, Touch Bar, etc.):
Magic Trackpad, Kinesis Freestyle 2 for Mac keyboard

If applicable, add screenshots to help explain your problem. (You can just paste or drag them here)

Device information:

  • Type of Mac: iMac 27-inch 202, Intel i7
  • macOS version: 14.1.1 (probably started under last version of Ventura)
  • BetterTouchTool version: 4.333 (43333)

Additional information (e.g. crash logs, related issues, etc.):
I mainly use triggers in Scrivener, but others (Word, Excel, etc.) also do not work. I have deleted and rebuilt the triggers, no help.

For the past year or two I've had weird Finder issues where my Sidebar Favorites suddenly disappear and all open Finder windows reset to the root directory. I seem to have fixed this by turning off nearly all Finder Extensions and most Run in the Background apps. I don't think any of those are related to BTT, but perhaps...?

"Disable BTT" is NOT turned on.

Problem solved. I had to reinstall Scrivener, and BTT didn't recognize the new version. I deleted it from the Apps panel and re-added it, and now things work. I exported the items I had added and then reimported them.
